How to make edible sugared petals

Posted on

It only seemed appropriate to have a carrot cake as I made the same caked the day before I gave birth and asfter she was born (I had a home-birth) the midwives, my husband, my Mum and I all sat around having a cup of tea and cake!

My very good friend came up with a great idea on how to decorate it with sugared petals, they are easy to do and look lovely now that they have set, all you have to do is pick some edible flowers, (I have used primroses and violets), lightly brush the petals with whisked egg-white and sprinkle on some sugar which has been baked in the oven for 15 minutes to really dry it out (make sure the sugar has cooled first). Leave in a warm place overnight and they are ready.

I’m yet to taste one………….
